Henlit: Whether They Realize It or not, Millions of Boomers Are Waiting For it

When did I stop writing about the angst of torrid love, motherhood, wandering husbands, and terrible bosses? About the time, probably, that I got bored with the angst and became a hen.

 

The transition was subtle, in me and in my writing. Not that I didn’t still pay attention to love, children, work, but the women I began writing about had concerns and problems that reflected my growing uneasiness in a world that worshipped youth, in literature as well as in…

My #nomakeupmovement

“There’s a part of me that likes shoes, and likes dresses, and likes makeup, and likes books, and likes to write. I think that’s the case for many women. But our culture makes us think we have to choose slices of ourselves that we’re comfortable showing the world.” -Chimamanda…

What Do You Do When Your Dreams Are Shattered?

Hillary Clinton certainly knows about broken dreams. The dream of being the first woman president, one I suspect she held throughout her life, has been shattered after a brutal campaign.

And then there are all of those women and girls who dreamed of a woman president and role model. Those dreams aren’t gone for good as some day it will be realized, just not this year. Hillary has helped to pave the way for a future generation, just as…

All Done With Crying All Over

I have cried on all forms of public transportation, including planes, trains, subways, buses and London tubes — I lived in England for several years — and, naturally, I've cried in my car.

Every woman who drives a car has cried in it; why there isn't a permanent tissue holder next to the steering wheel defies understanding and offers evidence for the need of women to be more prominent in STEM fields, particularly in automotive engineering and design.

Subways and tubes are the…

Time To Harness 'Nasty Women' Power

As quiet passivity goes out of fashion for women, fearlessness comes sashaying in, whistling and rattling her charm bracelet.

Having heard Hillary Clinton referred to as "such a nasty woman" by Donald Trump was like hearing the signal delivered in the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the one warning patriots that the enemy was closing in and that people made of stern stuff had to muster their resources and make a stand.

Citizens who hadn't rallied before were startled into action…

When Gray is the Color of Hope

 

Years ago I wrote a column about the complexities of race relations. It bore the same title as this commentary. I revisited it recently because of a troubling experience that brought it to mind.

The event that triggered that first piece involved an exchange I’d had with a black woman for whom I felt deep respect. We were in a women’s group talking about women and depression.  I said that my maternal grandmother had hung herself. I talked about her…

Note to Trump, your time is up

You know that Donald Trump actually got more speaking time than Hillary Clinton did in Sunday's presidential debate, don't you?

He whined that she got more, but that's because he was using man-time, believing he should automatically get 17 percent more than any woman. It's like man money or man years: It's the math enabling Trump…

embrace cake and laugh

it is magic, velvet,

moist like joy

slowly smoke the will of
